News12 Long Island reporter Kevin Vesey was very “alarmed” over the reaction of protesters who want the economy to re-open. A few people out of a thousand were angry, one man in particular.
The protest in Commack this week was the second one calling for businesses to re-open. There were about a thousand people in attendance. One group supported Trump as well.
A few attendees screamed at the reporter and one followed him, speaking harshly. One person told the reporter the Setauket Patriots were to blame but that group didn’t know the people who were harassing the reporter. I know the Setauket Patriots and they are very low key and peaceful.
This is the Setauket Patriots and they weren’t the people alarming the reporter:
In the end, some people believe the media will continue to get these receptions from a widening gamut of people. They know the media is lying to them. Dan Bongino put it this way, “The media did this to themselves.”

MR. VESEY ONLY REPORTED ON THE FEW ANGRY PEOPLE
There were nearly a thousand people not insulting him but you won’t see those interviews because they don’t exist.
Vesey said he’ll never forget it, which leads us to believe he has a very dull life.
Rolling Stone published an article about the protests headlining it, Protesting Trump Supporters ‘Berate’ and ‘Practically Chase’ TV Reporter.’ Their subtitle was, “I’ll probably never forget what happened today,” reporter Kevin Vesey said
Mediate titled their piece, ‘Traitor!’: Local News Reporter Abused and Stalked By Lockdown Protestors on Long Island
Mediaite overdramatized it for clicks most likely.
For those not on Long Island, News 12 is only left-leaning all the time. They run Cuomo in a constant loop, and always omit important facts that support President Trump. They’re not as bad as some, however.
Vesey wasn’t in danger of catching the virus, he has already had it.
Vesey was alarmed at this exchange:
The protestors, at one point, chanted: “Fake news is not essential!”
Vesey posted a video showing one of the demonstrators who refused to keep his distance.
“Can you please stay away from me, sir?” Vesey asked the man.
“This is six feet!” The man replied.
“You’re not six feet!” Vesey shot back.
“Measure!” The man shouted [no one seems to know who this man is].
Why he didn’t back off we can’t say. No one seems to know who he is. Some think he was a plant.
Honestly, many Americans know the media is largely fake news and they see it as traitorous. We need the media to be honest and to serve as legitimate watchdogs. They probably can’t come back from their reporting since Barack Obama came to power. They have gone over the line too many times.
The Setauket Patriots apologized after they were blamed but the angry people weren’t their members. The Patriots went to get a fair, positive report — always hopeful.
HE’LL NEVER FORGET
Mr. Vesey has already had coronavirus and wasn’t in danger. [How do you practically chase someone?]
I’ll probably never forget what happened today.
I was insulted. I was berated. I was practically chased by people who refused to wear masks in the middle of a pandemic.
All the while, I was there to tell THEIR story. Here’s the finished product. pic.twitter.com/HV2Hrcs7gi

An enormous protest has formed in Commack – hundreds of people demanding the NY economy open immediately. So many people without masks, many ignoring social distancing guidelines. pic.twitter.com/ftkkMiJ9il

TRAITORS AND FAKE NEWS?
One can make a case for the media reporting fake news and acting in a traitorous manner.
The media is ignoring or lying about the revelations from the newly-released transcripts showing that not one witness for Schiff’s impeachment intel committee had evidence that Donald Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia. It was invented. The media is also ignoring or lying about the unmaskings of General Flynn during the transition, which show they were spying on his every move.
There won’t be much sympathy for the media any time soon.
People know what’s going on, even if they don’t always express it politely.
